id rather have a phone that may lack some trival features that barely gets used to a great phone with a great cam with a great look/build quality.. as the site says 'flawlessly crafted'.
whens the last time you heard such a comment about a nokia phone?
Come on people, for this awesome phone to have an 8MP camera is pretty good, i mean the fact is that it's still just a phone. As for the 'recording' side of things, if you have seen the video quality on the other phones, this one would be above and beyond them. So the verdict is either you like the phone or you don't, but i personally like the phone and for all of you who don't, post your crap on the nokia page!!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2008saying that recording videos in good quality isnt important isnt a fact...it is just an opinio... moreWe're not in denial..as a matter of fact i can live with that..with all this video thingy. Now, if you own a phone that do exactly what you were saying..then by all means good for you. You can't push something to other people when it's really doesn't matter to them.
from reading the previous posts...
there seems to be two factions
1. one says "there's more to a phone than video recording"(and argues on why c905 is the ultimate phone)
2. another says this phone aint worth it because it cant record good quality videos
(thus claiming that c905 isnt a revolutionary phone)
my 2 cents:
to the guys claiming that there is more in a phone than recording a video, and claiming that this is the ultimate phone aka "nseries killer" well you guys just contradicted yourself since nseries being a smartphone, obviously have more than what this phone offers anyhow...
and to the guys saying that this isnt worth it because it cant record proper videos
wtf!!! is that kind of mentality? IMO that's too shallow of you, this phone is what a feature phone should be in 2008-09 though not a smartphone, it has the features that a smartphone could only do and that says alot
The truth of the fact is...
Even IF this phone HAS VGA recording capability, nokia noob will still going to have their way to find something just to dig a hole. They still going to critize it just for being a "sony ericsson"
Admit or not...this is the truth
well that is a good example allan,another example is:
what if you see your crush or a celebrity that you adore and he/she lets you have a photo or a video taken with you.
for the sake of traditinality, and convenience of not bothering that special person, in taking "the moment". You would probably opt to just take a picture and get on with your own businesses
but what if that special person conversed with you, chat with little bit...even told you that you are good looking or he/she also has a crush on you
you wont convince your friends that this special person that's with you in the picture told you that you are also special to him/her
but if you opted to record the video and the video would speak for itself...its a rare moment captured in VGA and 30fps in all its glorious form
your friends would see it all and its the ultimate form of evidence...bar none
As was my example of a rock concert. Camcorders aren't allowed in but cell phones are.
and on a side note:
it's easier to edit a photo than edit the quality of a video
saying that recording videos in good quality isnt important isnt a fact...it is just an opinion and a denial at that...
face it people....the only way to make a revolutionary camera is to include how good it;s video capabilities are...thus xperia for sony erisson is rock solid....
hmm the analogy used by dani isnt really...valid
I mean how could picture taking be anymore important than taking videos?
an event...an affair or anything both the pictures and videos gives alot....I of somethng to remember by...
but heck it would really be better if you'd remember an event by its motion and sounds...
Allan, 27 Jun 2008I wouldn't buy it with qvga, does that mean that i also have a problem. No. I have vga reco... moreActually you do. Cause buying a mobile phone is more than just a video recording. It had became a problem that you couldn't think straight anymore.
I wouldn't buy it with qvga, does that mean that i also have a problem. No.

bill, 26 Jun 2008Don't you have any brains, what nick is saying makes perfect sense. If you wouldn't buy a dig... moreIf the C905 can just record QVGA video, im fine with that. Im not going to make a big issue with feature that i will not going to use frequently anyways. If you can't live with that, then you're the one with the problem.
Think it s great!
And think that some people just spred some b**st...
And that Nokia s phones are a bulk of crap!
I think i've found the perfect complete phone. the nokia 1208 its awesome nothing will ever compare to the greatness of this beauty
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2008nick... again..'would you buy a real digi camera with qvga video? no you wouldnt.'... sorry if... moreDon't you have any brains, what nick is saying makes perfect sense.
If you wouldn't buy a digital camcorder with qvga, then why accept it in a phone.
